And this will actually do what? Elaborate please.

I think my problem is that somehow, the dvb stuff now has a dependency
on the nxt200x thing, whatever it is, as if I force a kernel build
without it, then I get depmod problems at the end of the build telling

.ko needs unknown symbol nxt200x_attach.

This was never a requirement up thru, and I didn't try 15-rc1
as the -rc1's are usually a disaster of some kind, and this is also my
main box. I don't need a filesystem muckup again.

So whatever did that seems in error to me, and should be backed out in
favor of some other method to bring in the nxt200x bearing cards.

Cheers, Gene
